What data is required?

MCR combines three existing processes – MDC, Monthly Contributions Breakdown submission and Automatic and Contractual Enrolment. Once you start on-boarding you’ll only be able to provide the data using MCR. Your ability to submit MDC and Monthly Contribution Breakdown Submissions will therefore be revoked.

The data required for MCR will be similar to that currently provided in the existing data collection processes that are being replaced, with additional data items. This will enable us to perform contribution reconciliation to a member level.

The data must be supplied for all employees that are determined by you as being eligible to be a member of the Teachers’ Pension Scheme.

This would include*:

  • Full-time and Part-time eligible employees that have a permanent contract of employment, casual contracts of employment or temporary contracts of employment
  • All eligible employees that are paying contributions into the Scheme
  • All eligible employees that are not paying contributions into the Scheme (Opted-Out, etc).

*for more scenarios please read the membership section in the User Guide.
